Doja Cat wore a daring dress for the Grammy Awards this weekend, but her hairstyle was even bolder.

She walked the red carpet on Sunday with new dark hair styled in a modern mullet. She also wore platform heels, smokey makeup, and a long-sleeved Roberto Cavalli gown that had a plunging neckline and green-and-black feathered skirt.

Her look was styled by Brett Alan Nelson, and her hair was done by Jared Henderson.

Henderson shared a close-up look at the musician’s hair on Instagram, showing its shag-like layers, short bangs, and longer strands that extended beyond her shoulders.

As Daze previously reported, mullets have a deep history that goes back to prehistoric people, Ancient Rome, and Native Americans.

Still, the hairstyle became most popular among musicians in the ’70s and ’80s, and then “quickly became taboo” by the ’90s as people began to see mullets as representations of being dirty and having low incomes.

More recently, however, the style has made a comeback. Celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Maisie Williams have all rocked their own versions of the look, from modern twists on the hairstyle to shag-style hair.
